Lil Miss Independent

The title says it all. Bentlie has grown into a very “do it myself” kind of girl, more so than my other two even. I promise you she will be in gymnastics at a very early age. The other two tried it out and liked it but we had to make some family changes at that time so it ended up being too far, and now they don’t want to do it again which is fine. I really feel Bentlie was born to do that or be a stunt double. I don’t know, lol! Anyone that meets her realizes that right away!

This outfit was picked out by her after I gathered the pieces over a few store stops. It looks a bit patriotic but there is no reason why we can’t sport red, white, and blue on random days in our beautiful country :D.

Technically the shirt was sold during July 4th, but we found it on clearance, and are happy to wear it any time.

The dots are silver which went great with the headband!

The skirt is originally from Target. Here is the link: https://www.target.com/p/baby-girls-2-piece-tutu-and-long-sleeve-sparkle-bodysuit-set-red-grand/-/A-51779430

The store that we got the skirt from carries all new clothes with tags but some at major discounts. When I do the Dirt Cheap blog, I’ll show you a few examples including a dress and other items I found!

If I leave this headband on for the picture, can I rock a minute?

I hope you enjoy. These are super adorbs, and Bentlie absolutely loves them! We let her pick out her outfit each day :).

For this outfit you will see the same shirt worn different ways, but it is one of her favorite shirts. When she sees it she grabs it and hugs it with the biggest smile!!!

The photo below was from a few months ago, and it still fits her. We buy a size up so clothes can last a bit longer. In the above photos you can see how much her hair has grown!!
